Sriracha spaghetti sauce

Sriracha Spaghetti Sauce

Boost that marinara with rooster sauce…

Here’s a simple way to bring your pasta to a real spicy boil. Sriracha spaghetti sauce (a.k.a. Sriracha marinara) is a simple pasta sauce to make, but the flavor impact is plentiful. There’s that tomato tang, a garlicky undertone, and a very eatable level of heat. This recipe turns your everyday marinara into something much more memorable.

Sriracha is tomato-based with a delicious garlicky undertone, so the mix of the rooster sauce into a marinara is seamless. And since the hot sauce is diluted into the tomato sauce, the heat won’t be full Sriracha – but you can add more to boost the bite. Or, if you’re concerned about making your Sriracha spaghetti sauce too saucy, throw in some crushed red pepper to increase the heat. It won’t impact the other flavors beyond the overall spiciness. Start with a pinch and work up from there.

Don’t only think of this as a spaghetti sauce: use it for any pasta, as a meatball sauce, or as a dipping sauce for bread or mozzarella sticks. The bold flavor will definitely be a hit for parties and as a game-day dipping sauce. Or – one of our favorite uses – try Sriracha marinara sauce with fried or baked eggs for a real breakfast jolt!

spicy chicken burrito bowl

Spicy Chicken Burrito Bowl

A fun replacement for taco night…

Taco nights are fun not only because tacos are fun to eat, they’re also fun to put together to your exact likes. Want a meatier taco? One with extra salsa? The choices are all yours. That’s why we love the DIY plating of a spicy chicken burrito bowl. It’s as meaty, as saucy, or as spicy as you’d like to make it. And it’s plenty filling as a meal, even without any tortilla on the docket.

This spicy chicken burrito bowl recipe is a total “dealer’s choice” meal when it comes to overall spiciness. Jalapeño peppers are the primary heat source here, and they are diced and to the side. So friends and family that’d rather less spice in their chicken burrito bowl can opt to go without. There’s only a minor spiciness on the chicken due to the paprika. Think of it as more of a warmth than any discernible heat.

If tacos and burritos are your thing, check out some of our other options in our spicy recipe index. Our chipotle shredded beef tacos are smoky, fiery, and just plain delicious. Or, for something lighter our fiery fish tacos are an excellent alternative.
